Shira Glassman's Knit One, Girl Two is the best book to read inside an empty bounce house during the one sunny day at Gay Camp A-Camp.
Now that that's out of the way, let me tell you about the adorable romance that is Glassman's latest. Clara, theatre people by day and yarn-dyer by night, finds inspiration at a local gallery. Following an internet trail, she discovers that the artist is beautiful, talented, Jewish, and maybe just the girl to win her heart. They bond over artist blocks, fanfic and art for their favorite superheros, and mishaps at work (not to mention Clara's adorable cat), with a happy ending for all.
This is a totally sweet, charming novella, and exactly the deep sigh of relief I need after reading a bunch of intense science fiction. The writing is charming and funny, and the story speeds along, with a very satisfying first kiss and the promise that super heroine Cinnamon Blade is getting her own story!
